At 1652 hours, SFD Volunteers were dispatched to assist the West End Fire Company of Quakertown, on a dwelling fire at Old Bethlehem Pike and Rich Hill Road in Richland Township. Battalion 18 (Wilhelm) arrived first to have smoke showing from a 2.5 story apartment building. Tower 27 (Captain Garges) responded and were directed to the C/D corner and ordered to start opening the roof. Before the Tower’s arrival, Wagon 27 (LT Gray) was dispatched to cover Station 17, but were redirected to the scene for additional manpower. The Wagon’s crew supplied the Tower with water, while their crew placed ladders and vented the D side.

A total of 3 SFD members were taken from the scene and transported to local hospitals. 2 were transported for heat exhaustion and another after being hit in the head with a master stream from a freak accident. All are in good spirits.

Special thanks to Montgomery Ladder 75 for standing by at the Station and for assisting in getting the Wagon and Tower back in service, as well as Rescue 60 for coming up to assist with anything else we may have needed.
